I’m a Master in Nutrition and a Certified Holistic Coach, I studied Human Nutrition, Meditation, Yoga, and Ayurvedic Nutrition and Pharmacy.
After facing a series of challenges in my own life, I have come to believe you can create a life that you love and that is giving you more. Using certain tools to obtain your mental freedom and emotional and physical growth, you begin to feel like life is happening for you and not against you.
I can’t wait to show you all the ways you can flourish and own your unique beauty. But first, I want to take a moment to share my story with you, because I’m somebody who dared to transform my entire life! Perhaps you’ll see some of yourself in this story.
In July 2017, I renounced all the life I knew in Costa Rica to embark on a mission of self-discovery as I became a solo traveler for 27 months.
With an intention in my heart and a backpack in my hands, I kiss goodbye the person I used to be to invite the possibility for openness and change. I traveled without a particular course. I lived in communes in the mountain, spent a lot of time by myself, met many interesting people, and had many masters along the way. It was nuts! But between the chaos I was living in, I found beauty (Hence the name Rame, meaning in Balinese beauty in chaos).
So why did I take such a crazy move to find myself? You ask. You see, since I was pretty young, I developed a strong people pleaser personality. I used to take extreme importance on what I needed to accomplish to be considered a successful person in the eyes of others, without even asking myself what I wanted from life?.
By the age of 30, with no awareness that I was hurting so bad my soul, I built a life full of “successes” but not entirely true to myself. I was what many call an achiever. I had a master’s degree, bought a house, created my own company, and married (but had an unhealthy relationship). I thought all this would bring me happiness, but as a result, I developed eating disorders, anxiety, insomnia, depression, and panic attacks. My self-worth was on the ground, and I didn’t know who I was anymore. Honestly, I just wanted to be high all the time to numb myself and feel free.
Wanting different results, I made the bold decision to take my life into my own hands. I began investing lots of time in self-development, spiritual practices, studies, & workshops. I got empowered, and finally, I sold everything I had, eliminated everything that was getting in my way to fulfill my dream of becoming a free soul traveler of the world.
After all the dust has settled and I reflect on what I have learned, I’m rooted in California, USA. I´m currently pregnant with my first child (a sweet baby girl), living with my husband Kyle and our Dog Nobody in a beautiful small town in the mountains. I feel peace and gratitude, in big part thanks to all I have learned, which I want to share with you.
I work as a Holistic Nutritionist and Meditation Teacher helping people experience their best selves. To make such profound changes to our life we must bring all these tools together, no single one is the cure. Hence the term Holistic Lifestyle. I created this blog to share everything I learned from my studies, travels, and passions, including self-awareness, nutrition, and wholesome living.
- You could set your standards for the way you want to live.
- You could pace yourself and get everything you want while you practice more presence and slow living.
- You choose to live more connected to your most authentic self.
- You could be the best version of yourself starting today.
Now that’s a life I want to live!
I think it’s time we break societies’ pressure of high-speed living, excess, and constantly chasing the treasures at the end of the rainbow. I think it is time to invest in ourselves and create a life that feels full of meaning. A life where you feel inspired and connected.
And a life where you are motivated to take care of your body, mind, and spirit because you genuinely want to experience your most unique and beautiful self.
I truly believe that you can create a well-balanced life that you love living by creating self-awareness habits and living in a wholesome way.

My Academic and Work Background
Let me cut to the chase: I love food; I have a strong connection with it. From growing it, cooking it, studying it, and even turning it into a business! Lol.
I studied Nutrition and Dietetics at the University of San José in Costa Rica, and I loved it. My first job as a Nutritionist was in charge of a private school and high school’s dining room. After this, I got a job in a 5 stars hotel where I was in charge of the special diet menus of 8 restaurants.
After some years working with food and recipes, I wanted to learn human nutrition even more profoundly, so I completed a Master’s in Food and Human Nutrition at the University of Chile (Being this the most challenging thing I ever accomplished). When I returned to my country, I opened a private nutrition consultation in Costa Rica, where I mainly worked with athletes, vegans and vegetarians, and people searching for weight control.
All this built a wonderful foundation of knowledge and understanding of the human body and western medicine, but I still felt something was missing. After all those years working as a private nutrition consultant, I realized you couldn’t reach wellness only from the body level. But it needed to have a holistic approach.
On my search for alternative medicines, I discovered Ayurveda. This system helps us achieve optimal health by supporting our natural healing. It integrates the mind, body, and spirit with nature’s primary cycles, allowing us to live in harmony with our ecosystem. In others words, Ayurveda was the holistic approach I was missing! So I traveled to India to become an Ayurvedic Nutrition and Pharmacy Practitioner.
Today I enjoy so much mixing Western and eastern pieces of knowledge, including food recipe preparations. I see the body as a whole, and my therapies are with food and involve self-awareness and mindful practices.
I genuinely believe in the power of natural and wholesome food, making my primary focus quality, nourishment, and connection, and I think no one diet fits us all. My mission as a nutritionist is to show simple and easy ways to keep a high-quality diet so you can nourish that beautiful, unique temple of yours!

I discovered the practice of meditation in the year 2015. It came into my life when I needed it the most, and it changed my life forever. As I wanted to have a stronger foundation and teachable tools to share, in 2019, I got a certification as a meditation teacher in Rishikesh, India. I also complement it with a classical Hatha Yoga Teacher Training which I did also in India.
Today I love to teach workshops with my signature program, Meditation for Beginners. I also share guided meditation and breathing techniques on my youtube channel and articles on my blog.
Being supporting people in their journey inwards is one of the most beautiful and gratifying experiences of my life and I’m beyond grateful I can share about this unique and special practice with you.

Frequent Asked Questions about me:
Which exercise do you practice?
I love to move my body in many different ways. I mostly do weight lifting at my home gym or at the gym at least 3 times a week, and I love to lift as heavy as possible. I practice Yoga by myself 2 to 3 times a week. As an outdoor activity, I truly enjoy hiking in the mountain whenever I can. With exercise, I seek consistency and not perfection.
Which diet tendency do I follow?
NON! But my journey in learning about nourishment and healing through food has come a long way, evolving and starting from a really young age. I turned a vegetarian when I was only 12 years old, turning vegan in my twenties. After 16 years of not eating animal meat, now in my late thirties, I’m focusing on eating highly nutritional unprocessed food, including animal products such as organs and raw dairy. Following a tag-free nonrestrictive diet and am open to changing my diet when my body needs it.
Do you meditate every day?
No, but I do practice at least 4 times a week. Practice, as I call it, involves meditation and or breathing. I have seen that if I spend many days without doing this work, my mind starts ruling my days, creating a sense of unbalance, which I don’t enjoy
What do you do with your free time?
I love going camping with my hubby and our dog. Usually, we go to the mountains, but my favorite place is the beach (forever the beach). Hearing podcasts and audiobooks while I clean the house or go for a walk. Turning the music quite loud and dancing with myself. Journaling and study new topics. And now I learned to snowboard!. Oh, and I also binge YouTube videos or Netflix series.
What are your hobbies?
I’m all about food, baby! So cooking! I also enjoy gardening and coloring books. Now let’s see how much this will change with a baby on board 🙂
What are your personal struggles?
I struggled a lot with my weight as a young woman, and I developed eating disorders for years. Today I heal that part, but still, my mind wanders quite a bit. I still worry a lot, practice lots of overthinking, suffer insomnia sometimes, and doubt myself many times. Procrastination and perfectionism are big ones for me.
Which people do you like to follow?
This one is a great question. There are so many people sharing fantastic work out there! Here are my favourites.
